Underwater World Langkawi (UWL) is one of the largest marine and fresh water aquaria in South East Asia. Since the start of its operation on 26 August 1995, it has become one of the must visit tourist destinations in Langkawi and has attracted a large number of foreign as well as local tourists.
The concept and theme of Underwater World Langkawi are geared towards Research & Development, Education and Entertainment. It is built to raise awareness on the importance of conserving our precious aquatic life forms, thus creating understanding of the deep and inseparable bond between man and nature.
At Underwater World Langkawi, we have three main sections, which displays Tropical Rainforest & River Ecosystem, Temperate & Sub-Antarctic and Marine Section.
Unique to Underwater World Langkawi is the gigantic 15-meter long walk-through tunnel consisting of 500,000 liter seawater which houses many big fishes and sea creatures.
Other attractions include the Freshwater Fish Section, the Seashell Display, the Koi Pond, the Reptilium Section, Invertebrate Section, the Coral Reef Section and the Poisonous & Venomous Section.
Visitors are thus provided with a one-stop shopping, eating and entertainment package, all of which are available within one area.
